Buffer

It helps me save hours by devoting only half an hour in a month's worth of posting, in addition to that it is quite simple to use. Buffer for scheduling social posts well in advance, but I have begun using it instead of posting natively on the social apps themselves because it makes it super easy to post the same messages to more than one platform.

When we have to maintain a consistent social media presence where posts are up on time, even if the day's community manager is unavailable, ScheduGram has made it efficient with the plans that we can create and schedule ahead. Our posts are also made available on Twitter, and we have to use other apps, or if you are not into posting across multiple platforms this is not for you.

Cons

Buffer

  • Expensive Analytics: The upgrade you need to access your analytics is quite expensive, and I have come across other tools that provide the same or even more for a lesser priced plan.
  • No Media Library: The one feature I have found on another social media planning tool that I wish Buffer had is a media library. This allows you to upload photos you aren't using right away to have them readily available when you do decide to use them. This is not a feature in Buffer.

Buffer

I am giving buffer this rating because of a couple issues that it has compared to other platforms. It does not always post to instagram and you will need to go in an manually post. Also, one of the biggest qualms that we have with buffer is the price it costs to have robust analytics

Usability

Buffer

We use Buffer for certain website content that should be shared on social networks, having this tool helps us to do it faster and easier since we can send the publications from the internet browser and the stack of scheduled messages. It is really fast and easy for all team members who share access to the account, so at the same time that we analyze the information that we can share, the message stack is prepared

Performance

Buffer

Buffer performs well on both desktop and mobile platforms. The one area as I have stated before is that it does not always want to automatically push to Instagram and the user will have to go do it manually. Buffer works very well pushing to other platforms. The instagram issue is the only reason buffer does not get a 10 on this section

We are always on the lookout for applications that make it easier to use social media and ensure a consistent presence. ScheduGram definitely fulfills that need for us, as it allows for content planning, overview, and most importantly scheduling it. Changing content plans is also very convenient across Instagram and Facebook. It serves our purpose for these two apps very well.

Implementation Rating

Buffer

We were very satisfied with the implementation of Buffer. We had no issues switching from the platform that we were using over to buffer. Our staff did not even miss a beat when it came to posting content. It was an easy transition and I feel that is something that buffer has really done well. They have an "out of the box" usability platform

Alternatives Considered

Buffer

I also used Combin which is easy and free to use. However, Combin only posts when the computer is active and connected to the internet. So, posting while you are not actively using your computer at that moment is not possible, therefore Buffer is much more efficient as you can even post while being on vacation without working.

We chose ScheduGram over PreviewApp because it has a much better user interface and much more robust features for similar pricing.
